Positive Behaviour Support
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), is the best way of supporting people who display, or are at risk of displaying, challenging behaviour.
Challenging behaviour can arise for different reasons, often personal to the individual.
The aim of PBS is to understand why an individual exhibits challenging behaviour, and address the issues that trigger the behaviour. PBS works best when the individual and everyone involved with their support, work together to develop positive interventions.
The support is person centred and focuses on pro-active approaches, which aim to improve the quality of life and skills of the individual and those who support them.
It is based on the principle that if you teach someone a more effective and acceptable way to have their needs met; the behaviour which challenges will reduce.
Our aim within Triangle is to:
- Achieve a consistent individualised approach for our service users in responding to their needs.
- Respond to service users in a way that focuses on their preferences and choice.
- Work in partnership with service users, staff, families and other agencies.
- Provide training and guidance for staff to support service users in an agreed way.
- Enhance the quality of life for all service users.
